MUMBAI: Shekhar Kapur is surprised that his casual meeting with Ranbir Kapoor has sparked speculation that the actor will replace Hrithik Roshan in the filmmaker’s ambitious “Paani” project.
“Oops! Can’t I meet an actor I like without setting of rounds of speculation? And would anyone be silly enough to give up Hrithik for a film,” tweeted Kapur.
According to reports, the “Mr.India” filmmaker has been meeting Ranbir and considering roping him in for the long-awaited movie, based on water wars.
But Kapur says he just enjoys the young star’s company.
“Press asking why I’ve been seen with Ranbir Kapoor. I really enjoy listening to him. Future of Indian Cinema safe in this breed of new stars,” added Kapur.
